Story behind the artwork:
A brief process of rice consumerism. After preparing the rice field, farmers plant rice and during its growth, take charge of water, fertilizer, weeds and pests & diseases. After three to four months, harvesting follows by collecting the mature rice crop from the field, such as reaping, stacking, handling, threshing, cleaning and hauling. Harvested rice is ready for drying which is the most critical process. Though drying by the latest system or mechanical means, traditional drying systems are still practice because of its low cost and ease of management like sun drying on mat, nets or canvas for small scale; and pavement drying often used in large-scale drying; and field drying or stacking method. Finally, after the rice is sufficiently milled and free of impurities, rice is delivered to consumers in sacks.
